You cannot, but the father can. You do not qualify for de facto status, based on facts presented in your question.
Neither the receipt by this attorney nor a reply from this attorney constitutes the initiation of an attorney-client relationship. The fact that we may have responded to an inquiry from you does not mean that we represent you in any legal matter. An attorney-client relationship can only be created through the mutual execution of an engagement agreement.
